The Office of Judicial Affairs is responsible for administering the California State University standards for student conduct. The office promotes standards of behavior that support Cal Poly Pomona's mission, vision and values of learning, responsibility, integrity, inclusiveness, and excellence. The office impartially administers a disciplinary process that protects student rights, upholds the integrity of the academic community, and fosters ethical development.
The Office of Judicial Affairs will:
Objectively assess and respond to an extensive range of student misconduct while observing fundamental fairness, social justice, and due process of student rights.
Ensure that all students, faculty and staff are aware of university policies and procedures — particularly, the Student Conduct Code — for maintaining a positive and productive living-learning environment.
Create a reporting culture on campus so that students might know the value of academic integrity and the well being of all students. A reporting culture helps our students to practice accountability and prepare for the social and professional environment outside of the university.
The Office of Judicial Affairs executes a variety of methods to ensure that we complete our mission and fulfill our vision at Cal Poly Pomona:
Judicial Affairs regards each student as an individual who deserves individual attention, consideration, and respect. Students should be confident that Judicial Affairs implements an educational process which strives to hold students accountable for their actions. Our office receives incident reports from multiple sources regarding behavioral misconduct and academic integrity violations. Judicial Affairs investigates each case, meets with the student(s) allegedly involved, and determines educational sanctions for the student(s) responsible for violating the Student Conduct Code. Judicial Affairs also works to connect students to appropriate resources and offices in the campus community, so that students are supported during their time at Cal Poly Pomona.
Our office also works to achieve our goals by engaging students, faculty, and staff through outreach to the campus community. Our office meets with colleges, departments and classrooms. Outreach includes workshops and sessions on reporting procedures, academic dishonesty, conduct code violations, and disruptive behavior.
